Brenda (Clingon) Shaw Funeral Fund

As some of you may already know, on November 15th we suffered a great loss.  My sister Brenda, age 46, passed away unexpectedly.  She had been taken to the hospital the night before for shortness of breath and extreme swelling. The following morning they ran some tests on her heart and she passed away in the early evening hours that same day. The doctor believes it was a blood clot they discovered in one of the arteries that leads into her lungs.

Brenda was a kind soul.  A selfless and loving person, who always put others before herself.  Brenda loved children of all ages, music, and loved singing karaoke.  Brenda had many hurdles thoughout her life, but through her faith she endured every struggle.

"It was an honor to know and be loved by her." Damian Kalka (Great Nephew), Age 11.

We have created this account on behalf of our family to help with the funeral expenses, so that our focus can be redirected towards remembering Brenda and grieving our loss.

Brenda lived on disability and had no insurance, so any donations are deeply appreciated.

Brenda's viewing will be held from 8:30 AM to 10:00 AM prior to the funeral service that is scheduled for Monday, November 27th at 10:00 AM at the Chapel Hill Funeral Home, located at 7735 Gibbs Sprawl Rd., San Antonio, TX 78239.

All donations are needed by Friday, November 24th.

Jeanelle is coordinating with the funeral home and in charge of proceeds, all of which will go toward funeral expenses.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
